In the wake of the demonstrations during the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, the city produced a white wash entitled "What Trees Did They Plant?" TV Stations that broadcast the film had to offer equal time to those speaking in opposition. One group was the Youth International Party or Yippies who produced this film. Paul Krassner wrote the script. Some classic film footage was re-mixed with footage shot during the demonstrations.

Subject: Terrific!
What a gem! Never saw this before. At times repellent, at other times hysterical. What fantastic energy we had in those days. Interesting that this was aired because at the time the FCC enforced the Fairness Doctrine, which required the airing of divergent points of view. The Fairness Doctrine was repealed by the Republicans in the early 1980s. As a consequence, we now have a kind of de-facto "unfairness doctrine". Under the "unfairness doctrine", all air time is sold to the highest bidder. About the only saving grace is that you can still turn it off without fear of arrest.


There's no traditional credit list.
At the end of the film there is a credit for additional footage to Killian Shows, Inc and a production credit to Documentary Interlock, Inc. However a search doesn't turn up a connection with current companies using similar names.
Producer: Abbie Hoffman
Script: Paul Krassner
The pitchman for the Yippie helmet was Marshall Efron.
The Yippie head was that of Bob Fass.
Keith Lampe was the narrator.
The song "I Ain't A Marching Anymore" was written and sung by Phil Ochs.
